Catholic University, Bechtel Collaborate to Advance DOE Mission

As the Hanford Waste Treatment Plant ramps up its commissioning phase, Bechtel explored the many contributions made by scientists, universities, and vendors from across the country that have made this first-of-its-kind facility possible.
